Aelwyd is a Charitable Housing Association, with a Christian ethos, providing rented homes for people in housing need. Currently all of its properties are situated in South Wales, and the vast majority are flats for older people.

Aelwyd works to provide high standards of accommodation and a good quality service to some 300 tenants. The work of the Housing Association is directed and overseen by a voluntary Board of Management, who are actively involved in strategic and policy decisions and responsible for monitoring the performance of the Association.
